Audit Trail
 


Audit Trail allows administrators to see who made system changes.

This could be useful in a number of different situations, for instance, if you need to debug an issue or audit a user.

 

This short guide will show you step by step how to:

Enter the filter criteria and click Filter

In the example below, we have filtered on Changes that contain the text string “logo”.

The filtered results show the logo being inserted and updated with the USERNAME, OBJECT, ACTION, and TIMESTAMP.
